Consider this before you judge me!

Andy smile

If you see me flapping my hands in the air for no apparent reason…… I might have autism

If I am making loud repetitive sounds, look upset or out of control…… I might have autism

If I do not answer you and avoid your gaze, or am awkward in social situations….. I might have autism

If I talk excessively about my interests, don’t like dinner, struggle without my usual routine or don’t like loud noises and bright lights…..I might have autism

If I look a little different, have unkempt hair, wear clothes that are unusual and want to touch and examine objects that are not mine……I might have autism

I am not ignorant or rude or without discipline.
My brain just works a little differently from yours.
I experience the world in my own way.
Please don’t stare or laugh at me.
Accept me, support me, try to understand me.
Or just let me be!

I.B.A.
